Does grilling repel mosquitoes in the backyard?
Heading outside for a barbecue? If you’re like us, you love firing up the grill and enjoying good food and company as the sun goes down. The problem is that if the sun is setting, that means that you’re in prime mosquito time; these pests are more active around dusk. While grilling doesn’t directly attract the mosquitoes, it also doesn’t scare them away, and all that time at the grill is a lot less fun if it’s spent dodging these bloodsuckers. That means if you have been counting on the smoke from the grill to get rid of the mosquitoes for you, you’ll be out of luck.
How can I get rid of mosquitoes by my grill?
Store bought remedies and kits can help, but if you have a real problem with mosquitoes you need to make sure there are no areas with standing water in your yard. Puddles or areas with water that isn’t moving are breeding grounds for mosquitoes. If your grill is a particular problem area for you, look around it. Do you see any puddles? Maybe a flower pot or bucket collecting water? If you see any sources of standing water, getting rid of those is the best way to reduce your mosquito problem. If you’ve done your homework around the house and you still have a problem, it’s time to call in the experts at Clegg’s.
